How to get in touch with the boys from the football world in our exclusive interview

Exclusive football news: What do you need to know about the Manchester United players on international duty?

It’s the biggest news story of the season so far and everyone is buzzing.

Here’s everything you need right now.1.

Did Wayne Rooney’s injury keep Manchester United out of Europe for the weekend?

There was no guarantee of the England striker being available for the tournament in Poland.

He was due to fly home from Poland on Sunday but he missed the opening match of the group stage and United missed out on qualifying for the knockout stage.

The squad is likely to be thinner than it was in June and it is unlikely Rooney will be fit for the Europa League final against Liverpool.

The England international has been in great form since the summer and he has scored five goals in the Europa league this season, making him the Premier League’s top goalscorer.

However, it is not yet clear if Rooney will return to the starting XI against Lithuania on Tuesday (4pm BST, Fox Sports 1) and there is an increasing chance he will not be available for Wednesday’s game with Galatasaray (4.30pm BST).

United are not without a goal threat in midfield and there are questions about whether captain Anthony Martial is fit enough to start the Europa match against Galatas.

United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to make a statement regarding Martial’s status at the weekend, although it is difficult to know how serious he is about him missing out.2.

Did United need to bring in more strikers in the transfer window to help them in the Premier Leagues?

United did not have the same budget in the summer of 2015 as they do now but the arrival of Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero in January helped them in their pursuit of goals.

There was no reason to panic in the wake of that transfer, but United did not get their money’s worth from the signing of David de Gea and then the £25m move for Sergio Ramos.

That is partly because they were not able to make the right deal for Paul Pogba but also because they lacked an impact player at the centre of defence.

United are currently in the bottom three in the standings with four points from their last four games and the likes of Radamel Falcao and Nani are the only players in the side who have scored more than one goal in the league.4.

What are the chances of United beating Liverpool in the Champions League?

It has been a disappointing season for the club and it would be an understatement to say they are not the best in the division.

They are still a long way from the top and have had to struggle against Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Chelsea in the first two rounds.

The fact they are in the top four of the league for the second time in three years would suggest that the Europa competition is not a disaster.

However they do have a chance of beating Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday (8pm GMT, Sky Sports 1).

They will need to do well to beat the Reds in the group stages.5.

What is the latest on Wayne Rooney?

He was substituted against Galaspor in the 3-2 win on Sunday and United have made clear they will not allow him to return.

The midfielder will be assessed over the weekend and there could be a decision on his fitness after the international break.

United have a busy weekend ahead, starting on Wednesday against Liverpool and then facing Stoke City on Saturday.
